Ambassador Le Thi Tuyet Mai and embassy staff introduced their country’s tourist attractions at the fair, and Norwegian travel agencies also promoted their tours to Vietnam.
Many visitors said they had enjoyed visiting Vietnam and wished to return.
The Vietnamese Embassy, in collaboration with Vietnam Airlines and Saigon Tourist, also organised activities at the fair.
While the expo was taking place, articles about Vietnamese destinations were published in two Norwegian tourism magazines - Reise Lyst and Paradisreiser.
